Overview

Since its formation, NH Right to Life has been dedicated to assisting and developing principled and passionate pro-life leaders among New Hampshire’s youth.

Through direct involvement with many community organizations, NH Right to Life has seen first hand the energetic and exceptional leadership of pro-life young adults.

In our continued efforts to recognize and develop pro-life leadership and convictions among New Hampshire’s youth, NH Right to Life is offering “Life Lights” Pro-life Scholarship to two graduating high school seniors. These $500 scholarships will be awarded to two young adults who meet the following requirements, complete the application process, and are chosen by the selection committee. This year, one scholarship will be awarded to a student who has been accepted at a NH College or University (public or private). Another scholarship will be awarded to a student who has been accepted at an out-of-state College or University.

Eligibility

Students must meet the following requirements to be eligible:

  • Are graduating seniors (home schooled students are eligible).
  • Have been accepted at and will be attending a College or University.
  • Have completed the application requirements.
  • Must be a resident of NH.

Application Requirements

  1. Write a short summary of your pro-life activities. Entitle this “Pro-life Involvement”. In this summary, detail pro-life activities in which you have been involved. This might include, but is not limited to, making a pro-life speech in school, attending a hearing concerning, for example, “assisted suicide” legislation, trying to dissuade someone from having an abortion, or attending a pro-life event. This section does not have to be long, but should include enough detail to give the selection committee a good idea of the kind and extent of your pro-life involvement.
  2. Provide two letters of recommendation from adults who are familiar with your pro-life involvement. These persons are to be non-relatives. These references could be written by a pastor, a pro-life leader, a teacher, or some other adult familiar with your pro-life convictions and activities.
  3. Please provide an essay, answering the two questions below. Your essay should be 500-700 words. We encourage you to use research data and/or stories, with permission, to illustrate your points. By your submission, you are hereby giving NHRTL permission to post your essay on our blog. We will always honor your intellectual property with your name as the author, but we reserve the right to post the essay at other times and in other publications and social media.

Why is it important for people to restore and protect the personhood and right to life of all innocent human life beginning at fertilization until natural death, without exception and without compromise?
